Topic: Overcoming Fibromyalgia and healing from within
Guest: Karen Wainie Owner of Love Your Life Wellness
According to WebMD: “Fibromyalgia syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. Fibromyalgia symptoms include chronic pain in the muscles, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful tender points or trigger points at certain parts of the body. Fibromyalgia pain and other symptoms can be relieved through medications, lifestyle changes, stress management, and other fibromyalgia treatment.”
On the show today Myles McNamara had on Karen Wainie who is the owner of Love Your Life Wellness and was born and raised in the Santa Clarita Valley. In the year 2000 Karen received a devastating Fibromyalgia diagnosis. Daily struggles included not wanting to get out of bed or leave the couch, severe pain, depression, little energy and no motivation. After letting the disease affect her for three years Karen decided to make a change.

Here is an excerpt from Myles’ show:
Myles: “Karen has been sharing with us her story of her comeback from Fibromyalgia or at least how she is dealing with it.”
Karen: “I am happy you mentioned that because most people do not get a cure from Fibromyalgia. Once they have it, they usually have to deal with the bad part of it most of their life. I say I don’t have the symptoms but if I didn’t take care of myself, if I went back to eating sugar, didn’t exercise and didn’t take my supplements, this would probably rear its ugly head again. However what I can say is that I don’t have the symptoms now because of the lifestyle that I am leading. Which is healing from within and really allowing the body to heal.”
